Atriplex is a widespread genus with species dispersed over almost all continents. Many taxa within this genus perform outstandingly under a variety of stress conditions and are often an important source of forage for herbivores. Such attributes have drawn the attention of many researchers who have conducted extensive studies on Atriplex across a wide variety of environments and management scenarios. This report reviews much of the literature dealing with aspects of the biology of Atriplex from an animal-plant interaction perspective.
Keywords: saltbushes, shrub ecology, animal-plant interactions
